Description

Just when you thought our inventory couldn't possibly improve, we've recieved a gorgeous 1997 Ryan Mission Grand Concert in impeccalble condition! Featuring the classic combination of Red Cedar and Indian Rosewood, this guitar combines the warmth of the former with the rich projection of the latter, making this an instrument equally at home for recording and playing in sessions. With a tight, focused tone that isn't muddied by excessive overtones, this GC comes across as a stellar instrument in the studio, where your fingerstyle arrangements can fill out the articulate middle registers. Later, when you're sitting down with your fiddle player friends to practice some tunes, this Ryan packs plenty of punch as a flatpicker for accompaniment in DADGAD. Having practiced, it's time to perform a set of Irish jigs--and that's when the K&K Dual pickup system comes in to faithfully translate the Mission's acoustic tone into amplified territory. Honestly, there's not a situation that this guitar won't outshine the competition.

If you're a guitarist looking for an instrument that does it all, congratulations: your search is over. This Ryan Mission is a complete knockout, from bass to treble, and it's previous owner took excellent care, so there's hardly any play wear to be found.
 
I used to own a guitar that was nearly identical to this and I wish I had never sold it. The Ryan guitars from this period have a quality of tone and playability that I think is as good as any guitar out there. This one is in great condition and sounds awesome too. It's very tempting to want to replace my old one with this one.
